My Praxeology.net website is down, along with the Molinari and ALL sites hosted therein. My service provider (the horrendous Aabaco, which is currently spinning off from the almost-as-horrendous Yahoo) shut it down because they say there’s malware on the site (though they can’t or won’t tell me which files are the problem). They’ll put the site back up as soon as I find and remove the malware. So far I haven’t been able to find any malware. Watch this space.

The C4SS prison abolition panel, originally scheduled for last year’s APEE but sadly cancelled, is being revived for this year. The panelists will be Dan D’Amico, Gary Chartier, Jason Byas, Nathan Goodman, and myself. Jason and Nathan need some financial assistance getting to the conference; if you’d like to help, please check out our GoFundMe page.

The Molinari Institute (the parent organization of the Center for a Stateless Society) has registered with Amazon.com for an Amazon Smile account. That means that if you sign up for Amazons Smile program and pick The Molinari Institute (EIN 20-3731375) as your preferred charity, from then on every time you make a purchase on Amazon (so long as you access Amazon through the Smile gateway), Amazon will donate from their funds, not yours 0.5% of the purchase price to us.
Thus for example if you make $100 worth of purchases from Amazon via Smile, well get 50 cents paid by Amazon, not by you.
Donations raised through the Smile program will then be split 50/50 between the Center for a Stateless Society and the Molinari Institutes other projects (including our upcoming publishing line).
The Molinari Institutes tax-exempt status is now officially listed on the IRS website. (It took a while because they only update the list once a month.)
